Ultra Clean Reports Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

HAYWARD, Calif., July 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ultra Clean Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: UCTT), a leading developer and supplier of critical subsystems for the semiconductor and display capital equipment industries, today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 29, 2018.

(PRNewsfoto/Ultra Clean Holdings, Inc.)

"The second quarter came in largely as expected, with a moderate sequential decline in our semiconductor capital equipment business off of an excellent first quarter," said Jim Scholhamer, CEO. "Based on recent announcements of spending push-outs from large semiconductor manufacturers, we expect some lower near-term capital equipment forecasts. On Tuesday, we announced that we had entered into an agreement for the acquisition of Quantum Global Technologies ("Quantum"). Upon completion of the acquisition, Quantum will diversify our revenue streams as Fab services grow with the installed base and are less reliant on capital investment timing. Looking ahead, we see a wide range of opportunities to solve our customers' complex challenges across much larger, more diversified and growing end markets."

GAAP Financial Results
Total revenue for the second quarter of 2018 was $290.2 million, a decrease of 7.8% compared to the first quarter of 2018 and an increase of 27.1% compared to the same period a year ago. Semiconductor revenue decreased 9.3% compared to the first quarter of 2018 and increased 29.4% compared to the same period a year ago. Total revenue from outside the U.S. decreased 6.2% sequentially and increased 43.1% compared to the same period a year ago. Gross margin for the second quarter of 2018 was 15.9% compared to 15.5% for the prior quarter and 19.0% for the same period a year ago. Net income for the second quarter was $19.0 million, or $0.49 and $0.48 per basic and diluted share compared to net income of $24.7 million, or $0.67 and $0.66 per basic and diluted share in the previous quarter, and net income of $20.2 million, or $0.60 and $0.59 per basic and diluted share for the same period a year ago.

Cash and cash equivalents were $141.1 million, a decrease of $21.2 million compared to the first quarter of 2018.

Non- GAAP Financial Results
Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2018 was $21.5 million, or $0.55 per diluted share based on 39.3 million weighted shares outstanding. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share exclude pre-tax charges of $1.1 million for intangible assets amortization and $1.4 million of costs related to executive transition. This compares to previous quarter non-GAAP net income of $25.7 million and non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.69 based on 37.5 million weighted shares outstanding, and non-GAAP net income of $21.3 million and non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.62 based on 34.1 million weighted shares outstanding for the second quarter of 2017.

The Company has provided a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures in the financial statement tables included in this press release.

Third Quarter 2018 Outlook
The Company expects revenue to be between $200.0 million to $220.0 million and GAAP diluted net income per share to be in the range of $0.26 to $0.36. The Company expects non-GAAP net income per diluted share to be in the range of $0.28 to $0.38. This outlook does not include guidance from the addition of Quantum Global Technologies. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of fiscal 2018, subject to customary closing conditions.

Conference Call
UCT will conduct a conference call today, Thursday, July 26, 2018, beginning at 3:30 p.m. PT. The call-in number is (844) 826-3034 (domestic) and (412) 317-5179 (international). A replay of the conference will be available for seven days following the call at (877) 344-7529 (domestic) and (412) 317-0088 (international). The confirmation number for live broadcast and replay is 10122356 (all callers).

Use of Non-GAAP Measures
Management uses non-GAAP net income and net income per diluted share to evaluate the Company's operating and financial results. We believe the presentation of non-GAAP results is useful to investors for analyzing our core business and business trends and comparing performance to prior periods, along with enhancing investors' ability to view the Company's results from management's perspective. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Tables presenting reconciliations of non-GAAP results to U.S. GAAP results are included at the end of this press release. A reconciliation of our guidance for non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the third quarter of 2018 is not available due to fluctuations in the geographic mix of our earnings from quarter to quarter, which impacts our tax rate and cannot be reasonably predicted or determined. As a result, such reconciliation is not available without unreasonable efforts and we are unable to determine the probable significance of the unavailable information.

Safe Harbor Statement
The foregoing information contains, or may be deemed to contain, "forward-looking statements" (as defined in the US Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995) which reflect our current views with respect to future events and financial performance. We use words such as "anticipates,", "projection", "outlook", "forecast", "believes," "plan," "expect," "future,"' "intends," "may," "will," "estimates,", "see", "predicts," and similar expressions to identify these forward-looking statements. Forward looking statements included in this press release include our expectations about the semiconductor capital equipment market, our third quarter 2018 outlook, our ability to consummate the acquisition of Quantum and related transactions, including the financing for the transaction, and the expected benefits of the acquisition of Quantum on our business. All forward-looking statements address matters that involve risks and uncertainties. Accordingly, the Company's actual results may differ materially from the results predicted or implied by these forward-looking statements. These risks, uncertainties and other factors also include, among others, those identified in "Risk Factors", "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations'' and elsewhere in our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 29, 2017 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and subsequently filed quarterly reports on Form 10-Q.
